Customers gain unprecedented levels of availability and resiliency with a next-generation API (application-programming interface) platform. Akana,, offers multi-datacenter geographic distribution and scale in the platform’s launch.

Large enterprises can avoid problems faced by standalone API gateways with Akana’s API platform, which seamlessly shares configuration and operational data. It provides realtime sharing and eliminates security vulnerabilities other approaches have exposed, such as replay attacks.

Customers can create a global API network with a single, logical platform deployed across multiple geographic datacenters. With this, all products distribute and configure identically across the system, issue service tokens everywhere for data control, manage API and app consumption and capacity, and relay global analytics.

The API platform solves typical failover issues, all while storing massive amounts of data. It is set to release via on-premise software and through the Akana Cloud.
